A lover of all things Paris....however....this theatre has seen better days. Depends on the attraction, of course, as that makes the experience. Get the cheapest seats you can, as paying more does not enhance your time at this venue. Uncomfortable seats, ushers that show you to your seat and then ask for tips...ok, not the worst, just a bit unexpected...I... More

Théâtre des Champs Elysées is a lovely place to be, the decoration is outstanding, and the stage direction and singing of Maria Stuarda excellent. However, the seats are built for migets and if you are of reasonable height it becomes a very uncomfortable experience. Tip: you cannot pre-order for the interval, so you need to be early at the bar,... More

One of our favorite concert hall is this theatre. Simple beautiful. Real Art Noveuax, not only the decoration but the whole theatre. This time we had the Phildelphia Symphoncs with Nézet-Seguin. Excellent concert, with an excellent orchestra and an excellent conductor.

We heard one of Jean-Pierre Rampal's concerts here. It was utter perfection and the discerning Parisian audience rose to its feet in a resounding standing ovation. An experience of a lifetime.

Beautiful theatre, excellent acoustics but seating can be terrible. The seating chart that appears during online purchases gives a very poor indication of the seat's actual location. Beware the STRAPOTIN which is a fold down seat on the ends of rows in the aisle. In the Corbeille they are about half the size of a standard seat, no arm rest... More

We went for the Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras at Theatre des Champs-Elysees during Christmas 2014 time. Pas de problème! Seating was fine for the entire family - 5 adults and 2 kids, including an abundance of coats, hats, and gloves that we did not feel like going au vestiaire for coat check. Funny, nobody dresses up in France for these... More

We booked the day before for a performance of Mozart, Brahms and Dvorak. We found our seats were in the rear of a family box. This was a surprise, but the family were friendly. The view of the quartet was excellent, the acoustics good and the playing good, if not outstanding.

We recently went to a performance by the Chamber Orchestra of Paris, which included music by Mendelssohn and Mozart. The concert itself was excellent, the venue beautiful, but as most people observe here, the seats absolutely terrible. Granted we hadn't paid for the top priced seats, but reading others' comments even these aren't great! We were lucky we had nobody... More

I visited here on the 23rd of May, having booked well in advance and having asked for a 'good' seat. I paid 140€ for my seat situated in section LC; Row H; place 3. This meant nothing to me as this was my first visit and I said as much to the booking clerk only to be assured that this... More
